MADISON (WKOW) – Ford is recalling some of its 2012 Edge vehicles due to potential fuel line problems.

There is a concern that the fuel line could leak and potentially cause a fire.  The problem is caused by a crack in the fuel line.  If there was a crack, the smell of gas would probably be noticeable and the fuel leaks might also appear.

The recall affects about 5,500 vehicles.  The Edge is a midsized SUV, and the affected vehicles have 2-liter engines.

Ford blamed faulty manufacturing by a parts supplier.  Ford will notify owners to take their vehicles to a dealer and it will do any necessary repairs for free.  Ford said it's aware of 12 cases of fuel leaks.  No accidents, injuries or fires have been reported.
